TheBrickAvenger captures the dashing masked-outlaw, Zorro, in this diorama featuring gorgeous Spanish architecture. The angled placement of the house and the subtle use of dark orange on the roof and sand green on the ground really enhances the overall appearance.
Welcome back fight fans, to Sin City Nevada for another round of Friday Night Fights. Tonight we’re going to go straight into the details! Sometimes it’s too easy to get overwhelmed and build big and boring, the key is layer in the details while building big. Let’s go to the tale of the tape.
As usual, constant reader, you are tasked with deciding, by way of comment, which of these beautiful builds will win the battle. On the last edition of Friday Night Fights, Modded Model Cars, Massimiliano narrowly won 10-9 with his Classic Space Mini Cooper. Tune in next week for another action packed edition of Friday Night Fights!
As we’ve ruminated here before, microscale design is no mean feat. Capturing the essential details while keeping the scale compact takes a great deal of talent, and some of the most difficult features to achieve at any scale are brick-built domes. Rolli (Moriartus on flickr) has excelled at this with his miniature replica of the great Baroque sandstone edifice Frauenkirche in Dresden, Germany. The real church finished reconstruction in 2005 after being destroyed by bombing during WWII.

If making a really nice modern architecture building wasn’t hard enough, Andreas has taken it one step further and decided to add unbelievably realistic damage.
The transition from clean lines to rubble is nothing short of amazing.
It’s been a year or two since I last saw a LEGO version of the Seattle Space Needle, but Erwin te Kortschot’s is worth the wait. Erwin’s version is edged with clean lines, and the disk at the top is about as smoothly pretty as LEGO can make.
